Large Bronze Bamboo Tetsubin


This teapot made from sturdy iron has an enamel coating on the interior to prevent rusting. The body is cast with a bamboo design. Bamboo symbolizes endurance and perseverance in traditional Japanese culture. Cast ironware heats evenly and retains heat well and is praised worldwide for their beauty, strength, and superb quality. In addition to brewing tea, you can also use this teapot directly on stovetop to heat water.

Historically during the mid 19th century as infused tea drinking became more popular in Japan, tetsubin or cast iron teapot evolved from being a kitchen item to being a status symbol used to serve tea. Many nobles cherish their teapots as treasures and are kept in the family for generations.

This product includes the following:
  • 1 teapot (approximate capacity: 1000 ml or 34 fl oz)
  • 1 removable stainless tea filter (approximate dimension: 3 5/8" dia)

A beautiful surprise for a 39th birthday!
February 11, 2014
This teapot was purchased for my daughter's 39th birthday. She has been a tea lover all of her life. The teapot is beautiful. The photo on the website does not do it justice. In addition to the bamboo embossing on the outside of the teapot, there are also tiny pretty flowers. The brass finish is polished to a beautiful sheen. My daughter was very surprised and thrilled to get this teapot. She said she will use it often and for many years.

Exactly what I was looking for and just as good as teapots over $100. If you follow the instructions, it will last forever.

Bought several of these as heirloom tetsubin for siblings and their children; in memorable honor of our Asian mother who passed. Ordered another recently. If u appreciate the traditions, and the difference it brings in enjoying the depths of loose teas.... indulge further and enjoy the full experience. Product well crafted, timeless work, and great service by this vendor.

Quality of the pot is good not great but it doesnt cost 179.00 like some I've seen. Small problem fitting handle but I got it fixed and the folks at enjoying tea were very helpful.

Bronze Teapot
December 5, 2012
The bronze teapot is lovely, beautifully decorated with bamboo, gingko and other plant life. Looks great on display and makes good tea. Very heavy. I use it to make several cups at a time. I also purchased the matching trivet and teacups and use the trivet as a coaster permanently on my end table. Nice set. Now I am "enjoying tea." Very well packaged and quick delivery.

The tea pot is lovely and looks just wonderful in my kitchen. It brings some beauty to a cup of tea. On the practical side, it was delivered promptly and in perfect condition.

Excellent choice!

I am extremely happy with this teapot. Not only is it beautiful (my 13 yr. old son, who never comment on the looks of anything, oohed and ahhhed over it), but it is obviously well made and is the perfect size. Though it looks rather small, It can hold four 8 oz cups of tea and keep it nice and hot for 45+ minutes. The teapot has the bamboo decoration on one side and the other side has beautiful tree blossoms and branches. The backside has a tree with fan shaped needles. It really is lovely. I also purchased the matching teacups and saucers and they, too, have the bamboo and blossoms designs. I am glad I clicked and was able to find these items, as I was seriously looking at purchasing a smaller set on the main page. The larger set makes more sense, as my family members are now wanting tea each time I make a pot! I will be purchasing a tea warmer in the future. It's also nice that the company allows you to select a tea sample when you purchase.
